Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In Gilot's wonderfully intimate, captivating memoir, Matisse, whom she greatly admired as kindred soul and fellow painter, seems to be the force holding together her roller-coaster relationship with Picasso. Her stormy eight-year alliance with ``bombastic introvert'' Picasso, which yielded two children--a tale fully told in her Life with Picasso --is recapitulated here without a trace of bitterness. Gilot throws a floodlight on the dynamics of the Matisse-Picasso symbiosis, wherein each artist continually challenged the other to transcend aesthetic taboos. Partly a valentine to a bygone Paris, her narrative also fills in the early years of Matisse and Picasso, with telling glimpses of Colette, Giacometti, Cocteau, Braque, Gertrude Stein, Juan Gris and many others. The book is charmingly illustrated with paintings, graphics and photographs. First serial to Lear's and Art & Antiques. (Nov.)
Library Journal
With charm and grace, Gilot draws a warm, touching portrait of two larger-than-life figures in modern art. The friendship between these masters--composed of both respect and rivalry, gestures of generosity and pangs of jealousy--is presented with the clarity and immediacy of one who was both participant and observer. An accomplished artist herself, the author writes knowledgeably about the pair's creative activity, interaction, and relationships with other important figures of the time. This is not analytic art history but a candid memoir of personal experience, much like Gilot's Life with Picasso ( LJ 11/15/64). Unpublished letters, informal photographs, and illustrations complete this ``double portrait,'' an intimate and fascinating insight into the lives of two celebrated but very human men. Highly recommended.-- Paula Frosch, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York
